The University of Rochester has reached agreement on a raise for its unionized service workers.
Local 1199 United Healthcare Workers East represents service workers at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The agreement gives all union members a one-point-seven percent pay increase...slightly more for those who have been on the job for at least five years. There's no change to the rest of the contract both sides approved last year.
The raise was negotiated this fall as part of the contract agreement signed a year ago.
